360 stroker?

Has anyone ever built a sbc 360 stroker motor? Speedomotive is where i have seen the kit and was wondering about it I want to do something different Im having a hard time deciding between a 355, 360, or the 383. I want a wild motor for my 72 c-10 im doing a complete restore and it will be a street strip truck. It will run 150-200 shot of nitrous when at the track but i want at least 450 hp without the juice. I don't care if it is on the edge of street use. I never hear of anyone with a 360 stroker so any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've built the 3.562 and 3.625 stroke versions, using the 350 block.........decent I guess...might as well just build a 355 though, or if you want to stroke it, go ahead with the 383 build. Just my opinion....means nothing

360 stroker sounds more like an oxymoron to me, like jumbo shrimp. If you're looking for 450hp, you can do it easier with more cubic inches. Go for a 383.

72....not raggin on you at all, I just looked that kit up on Speedo's web site.....$695 with CAST pistones!!!! which are NOT recommended for nitrous or anything "on the edge".

It's probably just a stock cast crank that has been offset ground. You can get 360 ci (almost) by just boring the 350 .060 or ifin you want to say you have a "stroker motor" then by all means get the 383 kit **WITH FORGED** internals for what you want have in mind. Nothing like building a brand new engine and then "grenading" it the first time you hit the SQUEEZE!!

Thanks for the input guys i think im gonna for the 360 stroker wanna be a lil different and i will run forged pistons where i can get those instead for the nitrous. It wont be getting nitrous constantly I have heard from alot of people that 150 shot can be pretty safely used if tuned right on a stock crank. Thanks again and Tech I want to be a lil different and if it were so easy to make Horsepower it wouldnt be as fun! If I were going for easy I would just buy a crate engine with a waranty. You live and you learn.
